The Acting Culture Minister of Antenion is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by President Urpo Aaltonen with an even hand, and remarkable for its complete lack of prisons, devotion to social welfare, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, cheerful population of 5.431 billion Antenis enjoy extensive civil freedoms, particularly in social issues, while business tends to be more regulated.

The large, liberal government juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Enton. The average income tax rate is 92.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Anteni economy, worth 794 trillion marks a year, is quite specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Furniture Restoration. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 146,273 marks, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

A few people seem to spend their whole time complaining, Maxtopian tourists make expensive pilgrimages to Enton to enjoy their national art, lifelong celibates are surprised to receive government-issue condoms in the post, and Anteni tourists are encouraged to hand out spare condoms to locals while on vacation. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Antenion's national animal is the Goose, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is The Cult of Godsinia.

Antenion is ranked 237,595th in the world and 339th in Thaecia for Most Politically Apathetic Citizens, with 31.28 Whatever.
